In the world of athletics, you hear the saying that “records are made to be broken”. Well, the 2019 Clinic did just that….6059 pre-registered membership, 121 vendor spaces, 425 guests for the Awards Banquet, 1700 raffle tickets for Mon.’s Vendor drawings plus 1000 more for Tues’s drawings, in addition to the most diverse session offerings in quite a while. We were excited over every hand that was shaken, every “hello” given, and every pat on the back. SC coaches, you, are commended on your support of the SCACA !!!

The Auxiliary Chairpersons are to be commended for their diligent work in recruiting excellent clinicians from the university/college ranks to our own high school staffs. We were, also, pleased to add sessions to assist those early in their coaching careers (ex. “Coaching: What I Thought I Knew”) and were delighted in the 45 attendees in “AD 101 for 1st Timers, 2nd Timers, Etc.” CPR Sessions and Cheer Safety Workshops were full. Tennis offered “Lunch & Learn” with actual demonstrations and a session, “Introduction to Men’s Volleyball”, made its debut. Another first was utilizing the field of Sports Psychology with Dr. Brandonn Harris of Georgia Southern (“Using Mental Skills Training to Separate Good from Great”) and Dr. Josie Nicholson of Univ. of Mississippi to address issues of mental health and suicide amongst athletes.

Tuesday’s Business Meeting elected the following Board of Directors: Chris Martin (Whitmire), 1-A Upper; Carlos Cave (Whale Branch), 2-A Lower; Zach Norris (Keenan), 3-A Upper; Chris Hamilton (S. Aiken), 4-A Lower; Rick Tate (Boiling Springs), 5-A Upper serving with Mike Srock (Byrnes) as President, Tim Perkins (Marion) as 1st VP, and Derek Youngblood (Williston Elko) as 2nd VP.

The following announcements were made:
• Increase of Liability Insurance to $2,000,000 per member coach
• Scholarship amount of $90,000 awarded to SC coaches’ children for 2019-20
• The first SCACA Lacrosse North South Matches to be played at N. Greenville Univ., May, 2020
• Greenville Turf and Tractor announced as a new SCACA Sponsor
• 2020-23 All-Sports Clinic to be hosted at the Greenville Convention Center

In the next few weeks, the SCACA office will post on Survey Monkey a 2019 Clinic survey. Let us hear from you. We do take note!!!
